Nice list of Kay films but  I would have to include Jewel Robbery.    Hey, that first 15 minutes where Powell gets the folks to smoke a joint makes this film a must-see.

I'm more willing to bet these are the Kay Francis movies YOU like BEST.

 

Her "best" ones are, as you know, a matter of individual opinion  :)

My top 10 list:

 

1. GIVE ME YOUR HEART...the scene where she looks at the picture of the son she gave up, it gets me every time. Her most tortured character.

2. I FOUND STELLA PARISH..love the mother-daughter stuff with her and Sybil Jason.

3. TROUBLE IN PARADISE..it's really Miriam Hopkins' picture, but Kay more than holds her own.

4. ONE WAY PASSAGE..she and Bill Powell were in 7 pictures together and this is arguably the best one. The remake pales.

5. THE HOUSE ON 56TH STREET..I wish she had made more films with Gene Raymond. So great.

6. THE GOOSE AND THE GANDER..a rom-com with George Brent. The supporting cast is outstanding.

7. IN NAME ONLY..she's perfectly bitchy as Cary Grant's estranged wife.

8. PLAY GIRL..she and Margaret Hamilton are a riot in this movie about an over-the-hill gold digger who gets a last chance at love.

9. ALLOTMENT WIVES..she produced and starred in this Monogram film at the end of her screen career. She's cast against type as a sinister crook, and she gives a delicious performance. 

10. MY BILL...yes, it's a B film, but even in a 'lesser' production, she could still play grand melodrama. The scenes with her and Dickie Moore are nicely played.
